Lobby correspondent, The Yorkshire Post

Britain’s most trusted newspaper (PAMCo) requires a journalist of the highest calibre to take up office as its lobby correspondent, based in Westminster.

A qualified senior journalist with a proven track record in political journalism - from parish to Palace of Westminster - this is an opportunity to ply your trade from inside the corridors of power delivering agenda setting journalism for the betterment of Yorkshire.

Applications for this specialist role should be made to: James Mitchinson, editor, stating why you are the ideal candidate. Please enclose a range of cuttings from all publishing platforms to support your application, as well as your CV.
